    Default Arrest Warrant for Grand Theft and Clearing Customs

    my friend got out on bail and left the country a few months ago. He did not show up to court so there is an arrest warrant out for him right now in california on grand theft charges which is a felony. if he arrives in new york, is there a big chance they will stop him at customs and arrest him?

    There is always a chance, but on one here has a crystal ball and can tell you for sure.

    can you tell me scenarios in which he might get stopped and arrested? would you say it's a 50-50 chance or 30-60? Is there any way of avoiding getting stopped at customs? i would like scenarios just to tell him what he might expect

    If he's caught he will be arrested. The scenario is he either gets caught or he doesn't. We don't have a crystal ball to tell us which scenerio will play out.

    but what kind of scenarios are there? what can someone expect when they cross the border and come face to face with customs? do they run the persons passport through the system every time or do they let people pass without question sometimes? what goes on over customs?

    ?? I guess it depends on if the customs officer feels like it. Depends on where he was and what business he had there and where he's been inbetween. I've been questioned on business and pleasure and I'm a white female in my 30's who has never been in trouble. I'll also tell you NYC/JFK has been the worst for me.
    Its just like any other time he's been thru customs, it's random??
